Windows 8 - Surface Pro - Active Directory Domain User
I was once logged into our domain. At some point I started to get the "The Username or password is incorrect. Try again message." The same domain login and password works on other PCs. I can log in as another domain user on the problem PC. I deleted the user profile, rebooted, and the problem persists.
What else can I do to make the Surface PRO/windows 8 forget about my login data? (I assume it isn't really contacting the domain otherwise it would work.)
I removed CheckPoint Mobile and the domain login worked - the first time it worked and the profile was rebuilt. Now I am back in the same place - username/password not being accepted for my login, a test user login works.
If I make too many requests that fail the account does get locked (Windows 8 tells the user that the account is locked) so ADS is getting login requests.
Any idea as to what might be going on?
========== update 2
The CheckPoint stuff didn't have anything to do with it. I'm setting up a fresh Surface Pro and I have the same problem. I join our domain and my credentials worked OK for that. I rebooted and logged in as a test user, OK. I then tried to login as me and if fails. I have elevated permissions since I manage our OU, but not domain admin. KB 2795944 mentions a bug fix for this case, and it is installed.

I had another regular user try Run As on a program and their domain creds worked. (This action created a profile for them on the PC.) Same action for me and my creds fail.
Any one recognize the problem?
FYI to the OP - after a couple of MS updates things smoothed out quite a bit. I still had to uninstalled CheckPoint before moving up to 8.1. I also found that using a USB to Ethernet connection makes things a lot easier. And/or use a wireless connection that is not connected to a domain. I still have to wrestle with the WiFi domain connection but it eventually works.
